Apartments get favorable vote, but not full support
A pair of apartment projects is not getting the full support of the Tippecanoe Area Plan Commission.
Members voted 7-5 in favor of both, however, eight votes are required for official recommendation.
The first proposal request was to rezone an area to make way for an eleven building complex on the corner of U.S 231 and Veterans Memorial Parkway just outside of Lafayette.
Despite the inconclusive vote, the members requested the project be sent to County Commissioners, but with no recommendation.
The A-P-C will re-vote next month on a proposal for 178 lot duplex development in West Lafayette between Kalberer Road and County Road 500 after it also received a seven-to-five decision.
Members will take up the request again at their September 19th meeting.
